It’s funny how many things on the internet seem much more appealing during finals.

Although these posts are becoming few and far between, I haven’t given up! Life is busier than ever but it is staying beautiful. Hoping everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving. Here are some photos from the second leg of my long weekend adventures : Charlottesville, VA.

Have had a crazy, busy, amazing last week and a half. Bopping around NYC while visiting my sister, Brooklyn to see one of my best friends, shows and shopping and even beer tasting in slower-lower DE. Sad summer is almost over but some things never last. Happy Friday!

ran into this Roa rabbit in Brooklyn last week

Chelsie Ravenell has been a favorite, local celeb of Charleston for quite a few years now and he deserves the attention. His personal grasp of “country-boy meets urban-lifestyle” has helped him create some amazing designs. Gentlemen: now is the time to take notes.

London has had quite a few artists pop in over the last month. The Bortusk Leer is awkwardly perfect.

Since my return from Spain, I have been beyond busy. Alongside a load of school work, catching up with friends and a few unnecessary (but pleasantly gained) pounds to drop, I was able to take a break from reality and spend a beautiful weekend with some fabulous people. Charleston Fashion Week 2011 is a prime example of the phrase “only gets better with age”. A handful of years under her belt, Ayoka Lucas has turned her fashion week into something to talk about (even NYFW’s Fern Mallis came down to see what the hype was about!). Another reason why I love this city…

As if the decorations in the streets of Barcelona and having my Christmas playlist constantly playing on my macbook (maybe with a few interruptions from the new Kanye album) had not yet gotten me in the mood for this holiday season, one last trip to Paris definitely did the trick. Per usual, my flights were delayed 4 and 3 hours going to and from the lovely grey city but it was for a beautiful and greatly missed reason…SNOW! Surrounded by snow, I was welcomed by chocolate, cheese, the worlds greatest space heater and two of my best friends.

After some ungodly-thick hot chocolate from Angelinas by the Tuleries and a stroll through a gallery specially designed by Monet for his works, the Christmas markets along the Champs Elysees were the perfect place to start some of my very delayed gift hunting. While Peyton was finishing up her classes for the semester I took a train over to Versailles, only to find the Chateau closed for an event! Luckily for me, the gardens were open for jogging and exploring. I chose the latter of the two, taking pictures of the grounds and some of the unusually friendly swans that I encountered.

Paris was an amazing end to my European adventures outside of Barcelona… Only 8 days left in España. How did time fly by so quickly?
